    Most christians I run into nowdays just seem to make shit up wildly as they go. You cant fight it with Bible-knowledge cause they dont care. Me: “Bible says... “ Them: “Oh thats ok, I just do...” As fundamentals fall, there is an increasingly huge puddle of people doing/saying/believing whatever they feel like. They will have their own personal little denomination based on nothing and yet still count themselves in the Christian camp. Weird. Prob always been that way but I see it more now personally

    I have religious family members and friends on facebook, and this time of year they start whining about "Jesus" being the "reason for the season", and "it's merry christmas, not happy holidays" and so on, and so forth. I am getting so tired of this bullshit. They talk about people getting offended when they say merry Christmas, but the only people I see whining and getting offended are Christians when someone says "happy holidays". I have very politely offered my point of view--that a friendly greeting should be returned in kind, however it is worded--and now I think they believe I'm some kind of demon, or something. Not that I care...maybe I can scare them with my evil, demonic nature.

    I now swear releasing anger and feel I can now enjoy myself. I watched a cartoon with magic and feel I no longer have guilt and pain inside me anymore. I feel I don’t have to live a certain way or please God. I have stopped crying and screaming at God for answers. I have stopped praying and feel so liberated!

    You got to watch the video at this link. http://insider.foxnews.com/2018/12/09/greg-gutfeld-war-christmas-pc-album-baby-its-closed-outside And yes, it's true. The christmas song, Baby It's Cold Outside is being banned because it contains elements of a conversation between a man and a woman.

    You guys may be right. Problem is, one of the preachy types happens to be my brother. We used to be quite close. We could have an intellectual conversation about science, astronomy, space travel, and other nerd topics. But then, a few years ago, the christian noose fell around his neck and stopped the bloodflow to his brain. All he thinks about now is that damned cult. I mourn his loss.

    Unfollow, unfollow, unfollow, and then unfollow some more. Not worth any space in your rational mind.

    I know this isn't what you meant, but I like it more than the actual subject and don't want to think about it, so I'll just pretend the thread is about something else. Sexy cable management makes me hard...

    “God has a plan for your life” Jeremiah 29:11 So misquoted as that is not to Christians in general “The fool says there is no god”. Psalm 14: james 1:5 yeah right..yep proverbs 3: 5-6. Oh wow that worked! Lol! I tried hard to believe this crap, it didn’t work for me!

    Always amazed at where you can find life. Doesn't matter what pressure, temperature, environment or amount of light, there is always something that sets up home there. Makes me hopeful for the search on other planets, if life is this hardy then who knows where it has got started... http://www.msn.com/en-nz/news/techandscience/zombie-bacteria-hint-life-on-earth-began-deep-underground/ar-BBQN2fa?ocid=ientp "The lifeforms are so numerous that their mass may be up to 385 times that of all humans"

    "We’re mistaken if we believe that the collapse of Christianity in America has led to a decline in religion. It has merely led to religious impulses being expressed by political cults." “Now look at our politics. We have the cult of Trump on the right, a demigod who, among his worshippers, can do no wrong. And we have the cult of social justice on the left, a religion whose followers show the same zeal as any born-again Evangelical. They are filling the void that Christianity once owned...” I don’t always agree with Andrew Sullivan, but he is always worth reading... http://nymag.com/intelligencer/amp/2018/12/andrew-sullivan-americas-new-religions.html

    Matthew 7:22-23 …22Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’ Favorite verses in the Church of Christ. Members were constantly reminded they could never be sure they were saved.

    Nailed it, @Joshpantera. That's why is can be challenging to hang it up. When you make the big announcement or just stop attending the weekly fundyfest you are also, in some eyes, eschewing the "good" part of society or just "our" cross section of it. I'm doing my best to show the fams that I'm still the same buttnugget I always was.

    " But then, a few years ago, the christian noose fell around his neck and stopped the bloodflow to his brain." Hilarious and sadly accurate at the same time. Love it!

    Part of my canned evangelical training. Part of the assumptive sales pitch I used at around 100 households, and, "closing" nearly half of them with "the prayer of acceptance". The thought of it all makes me Ill.

    Ask and you will receive . . . Yeah in my 20+ years as a Christian that only worked in hindsight with a heavy dose of rationalization.

    You just can't win with these kinds of people. I make a point of not even having them on Facebook. I can only take so much whining. And I never need to worry about what people think about my views on FB since none of them are friends with me.

    I agree with Josh. She likely doesn't even realize how manipulative she's being. My take - if someone told me one day they don't see a future with me, and the next, that they're willing to do what "god decides" - well, I likely would tell them I don't want to hear from them anymore right after they told me they don't see a future with me. Also, I would have done my best to ensure the above scenario that occurred with you in this last post wouldn't even have occurred (ie I'd have made a clean break and told them after episode one that we not be in touch anymore). I would see nothing but heartbreak and hardship down the road in this kind of relationship.

    The odd part was that no matter how many times we quoted verses and claimed promises, we always gave him a pass when he utterly failed to keep his promises or honor the verses. Believers have to keep telling themselves that god is faithful anyway and has a better plan. Try that in the business world when you don't keep a contract or promise. Have one of your reps tell the other company "Oh, just trust him. He has a better plan (that he won't explain or give you any clues about). In fact even death is better, because you get to be with him forever!! Now tell him again how utterly great he is! Steeeevvvvee Jooooobbbbsss glooorrryyy awwwwesommmm...." For me, the part I hated the most was MIS-quotes, like "As a man thinketh in his heart, so it he". They would preach on that like it was some kind of New Age truism that what you think, you become. But the actual quote is "Put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony, for as he thinks in his heart, so is he". Taken in full context, Solomon is warning his newbie son about politics. Other kings will want to make treaties and deals, throw big parties for you, give you lots of wine and women, but all the while their hidden (in his heart) intent is to kill you and take your kingdom. Kind of a different meaning, huh? There is one, Proverbs 14:12 "There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death." So... we should do what seems wrong to us? Stupid verse. Yeah, people make mistakes. The implied meaning is that the Bible will always have the right answer even if it seems stupid. But as we found out from experience in reality, it really is stupid to trust made up stories and primitive myths instead of what we can test and see.

    That is exactly where my mind went to. I'm hoping for a cash injection which will allow me to get a new gaming rig, it is literally dreaming of a PC Christmas. Just all depends on the budget...

    There are some homes this far north (Vancouver, WA) that have solar, but it is almost pointless with the amount of cloudy days and rain. The cost of upkeep on the panels more than outweighs the energy savings, so say those who thought it would help them with energy bills. I saw quite a few in San Diego that had solar. No idea if they keep them in shape or not, or how much upkeep they need down south. Here it is moss and algae that will coat the panels, plus leaves. Down there it is mostly dust and dirt blown around.

    I tried to (it's supposedly in TN223257-3_20180423T083004_2019_Standards_Part_6_Chapter_8_Section_1501_Revised_Express_Te.pdf) but it just gives me a blank page on the redirect. I suppose I jumped the gun. I guess the fact I did that means that California isn't already number one with solar installs? And isn't first with the car thing too? I also think we're probably right up near the top in home prices too. I guess my questioning how reasonable this is makes me some anti-government radical to you? Looks like it doesn't take much. mwc

    People are as they are. What they believe is largely incidental. Happy people tend to make happy atheists, and happy theists, for that matter. Unhappy people tend to be unhappy regardless of their belief structure as well.

    There's a man with a 25 inch penis. He goes to a witch in the woods and asks her if she can make his dick smaller because he just can’t please the ladies with it being so big. He hasn’t found a lady yet who likes it and he can’t get any pleasure. She tells him to go into the woods and he will find a frog. When he finds the frog, he is to ask it to marry him. If the frog says “no,” his cock will shrink five inches. He goes into the woods and finds this frog. He asks, “Frog, will you marry me?” The frog says, “No.” And his prick shrinks five inches. The guy thinks to himself, Wow, that was pretty cool. But, it’s still too big. So he goes back to the frog and again asks the frog, “Frog, will you marry me?” Frog: “No, I won’t marry you.” The guy’s dick shrinks another five inches. But that’s still 15 inches and he thinks it is still just a little bit too big. He thinks that 10 inches would be just great. He goes back to the frog and asks, “Frog, will you marry me?”. Frog: “How many times do I have to tell you? No, no, NO!!!”

    I told my husband a few months ago I needed to tell him something,that I couldn't carry it on my own anymore. We sat on the couch and I shared I wasn’t a Christian anymore and that I didn’t believe in Jesus. We both cried some and he told me “I’ve never been through this before but I’m here and I love you.” And he does. Sometimes I go to church with him and our children. We still hold hands around the table to pray for dinner but he doesn’t ask me to take a turn anymore. We choose each other and I trust his heart. It helps that he’s never been very loud about his faith. He quietly lives it out by being a good husband and father and I’m very lucky.
